Callaway County United Way kicks off 2012 campaign

The Callaway County United Way kicked off its campaign for next year Friday at Walmart in Fulton.

Their goal is to raise $260,000 this year.

While we were there Friday they were already up to a little more than $90,000.

The kickoff party started bright and early Friday morning and runs through 8 o'clock Friday night.

There was a barbeque, silent auction, car show and many other activities throughout the day.

The United Way asks that you come enjoy the fun and make a donation, if you can.

"By giving through the United Way you don't just give once, you give multiple times. We have 14 different agencies that we help fund. Those agencies around here help with basic needs in Callaway County. They help provide housing for folks who don't have it. They also help with food through the food pantry and help serve, Callaway County United Way Glenn Harris said.
